TLC Animal Hospital
Wonderful, caring, compassionate, honest Vet. Thank you TLC and Dr. Kathleen Bucher for being honest and looking out for my precious Cat when he was very ill. Dr. Bucher helped me make the right decision for my sweet baby. She told me "the best gift I could give Frisko (my 17 old Cat) was to put him to sleep". As difficult as it was to make that decision it was truly the best decision for Frisko. I would recommend TLC & Dr. Bucher to anyone who LOVES their PET. Thank you TLC and Dr. Bucher for helping my Frisko not suffer more then he already was. You are a wonderful trust worthy place. Even though my heart aches and will for a long time I know Frisko is no longer suffering and that is what matters the most!

Hands down! Central Animal Hospital is the best! Dr. Stetzer and his staff are so compassionate and very knowledgeable. I have 4 dogs and 2 cats. Unfortunately, I have had to call Dr. Stetzer on an emergency basis for two of my dogs and he told me to come right over! He and his staff took such good care of by two babies, who had to stay the night. Dr. Stetzer even came in on SUNDAY to examine them and let me come pick them up. My dogs recognize the building when we pull up to his office and get so excited! They love to go to vet! Thank you, Dr. Stetzer and your wonderful staff, for all you've done for my fur babies!!

Regency Veterinary Clinic
There is a blond receptionist who answers the phone that is EXTREMELY rude - totally inpatient- and if one has an accent she just puts someone else on the phone and makes you wait long time. I don't know how the vets still didn't fire her because that's what she deserves, until she decides to grow up. I won't go back to the clinic because of her. There are lots of clinics around with nice, decent and competent staff to go to.

Chadwick Veterinary Center
Fantastic! We love our vet! They offered free first time visit for each of our pets. They don't try to rush you out either, took their time making sure my cats were comfortable. Recently my cat was sick and they had me come in right away to get her checked out. Dr. Chadwick and his staff are fantastic and caring, he even remembered me from our previous visit!

Dr. Stetzer and staff have gone over and beyond for me and my family of fur! I would highly recommend him! Everyone who works there cares and tends to the animals in a compassionate way. Unlike other veterinary hospitals, you are not just a "number," here you really are family! Thanks for all you do!

Dr Stetzer and his team are the best! My dog is almost 10 years old and this office is by far the best I have encountered. They are very knowledgeable and quick to help with any issues involving my dog. I would recommend them 100%!

She is the BEST there is. Compassionate, incredibly knowledgeable, even beyond the scope of her practice. Innovative and practical. I would NEVER EVER go to anyone else.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
